A Day In My Life Here........

Well, we seem to be settling in nicely here. Somewhat developing a bit of a routine.

Weekdays I get up earlier than I have since my kids were in school. Quick shower, then I make a cup of coffee, make a slice of toast (sometimes even an egg), sometimes I vacuum a the living room rug and the entryway carpet, sometimes I don't. I read a bit- look at my blogs and of course the ever present Face-Book.

(Had a bit of a scare day before yesterday when I couldn't get B & N to download me any e-book purchases I was trying to make. Turns out I can't use B&N with my NOOK overseas unless I have a military account or a Govt account. But my hubby figured out how I could still use my NOOK. Thank God.)

Run a few errands, throw on a load of laundry if it needs doing, do a run to TESCO for the daily shopping. Come home, eat a bite of lunch (usually a half sammich or something light like a piece of fruit) and then watch a bit of telly until time to start dinner.

Have a bit of dinner, wash up dishes, watch a soap or two, then play a bit on the wii or watch a movie. maybe a bit more of a proper walk around the neighborhood, a bit of a chat with a few friends and family on either FB or SKYPE, and then head off to bed.

Weekends are a bit looser, a bit of a lie-in, a trip into the next town or just a lazy day catching up on chores or watching the telly. A bit of a competition on the wii or Xbox, maybe a meal out (or not), a walk about the neighborhood or a visit with relatives and friends who come by to visit.
a simpler life...a slower pace of living. I love it.

My next blog-post will be answering a few questions I've been asked since I moved here...more SPECIFIC things about the house we live in, the curtains, the car...etc....

I'm mapping it out now, so stay tuned...

THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES.........

I would love to have your schedule for 3 or 4 weeks. It has been pretty hectic here with technicians being out sick and lot to do. The weather is staying so nice. The much needed rain just won't come. Well Sunny, take good care of yourself and "take Pictures" OK? It would be great to see one of "you" over there. Bye for now.
